right of the party, or as he is now, according to bill clinton, mr. moderate mitt, that we haven't seen it for a few months. >> well, first of all, i couldn't hear it very well, i assume it is referring to the des moines register. but are there piles of legislation sitting in congress that he is going to point to? the des moines register editorial board? the fact is, he is and has always been committed to being a pro-life president. he is committed to the fact that he will not fund planned parenthood to fund abortions. and committed to not sending foreign aid to countries to fund abortion. he is a pro life president, he is proud of it. and i just think -- i just think many are taking it, referring to one sound bite, piles of legislation, sitting in congress. and it is much ado about nothing, this election is about the economy, the president has not performed. he is chasing every rabbit down the trail to make this thing about his own record, and the miserable condition of the economy. and that is what we'll talk about. >> but isn't the problem? it comes down to trust, and therefore, we h
and bill clinton wisely took the dividend from that, he was able to then raise taxes that reagan and clinton had lowered, and used that dividend to get us into a surplus situation. so it was a combination of realigning america with the world, getting rid of a trade deficit, having an export-led recovery and then taking the dividend and not spending it so much. mr. clinton was very shrewd that way so kudos to two bright presidents, reagan and clinton. >> dan, i want to bring you in because it's a much different global economy than it was in the '40s and '50s. is this working against a large-scale rebound like we saw after roosevelt? it's a very different world. >> well, look, first of all, the notion that obama didn't cut taxes and all he did was absurd. the stimulus was one-third tax cuts, big payroll tax cuts. plenty of tax cuts. >> very true. >> and for small business tax cuts, too. >> export boom, exports on a monthly basis have risen 50% from their low in march of 2009. the difference is that we have an economy in which rising demand doesn't necessarily translate into more jo
bill clinton become president and is working to keep barack obama president. all of it with an eye to tuesday and beyond. that's because tuesday could be when president obama regains the initiative which he lost on stage in denver, or when mitt romney might consolidate his gains. first, quickly, the event that really sets the table for tuesday, last night's vice presidential debate, which depending on who you ask is either pulling president obama's case for re-election off the critical list or vindicated mitt romney's choice as paul ryan as running mate. depends what side of the political aisle you stand on. keeping them honest, each debater had moments that didn't quite stand up to closer scrutiny. first, paul ryan on the stimulus, which vice president biden called him on. >> they said that right now if we just passed the stimulus, the economy would grow at 4%. it's growing at 1.3. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsi
: but democrats including bill clinton say romney has been trying to shift back to the center ever since last week's debate. the obama campaign is pointing to what romney said to "the des moines register" on the issue of abortion. >> there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> reporter: contrast that with what he said at a town hall last year. >> what i would like to see happen would be for the supreme court to say, look, we're going to overturn rowe v. wade and return to the states whether they want to have abortion or not. >> severely conservative positions that got him through the gop primary are still there. now he's trying to cover them up. >> reporter: asked about those comments on abortion, a romney campaign spokeswoman released a statement to cnn saying the gop nominee will be a pro-life president. >> jim acosta in ohio traveling with romney. in just a few minutes we'll have some of my interview with mitt romney. also, we had an exclusive interview, we at cnn, with the republican running mate paul ryan. he's getting ready f
gats this week. former president clinton teams up with mr. obama at a fundraiser tonight in california. two days later, clinton campaigns for the president in another battleground, nevada. >> mitt is up to the task. he's prepared. >> romney's wife ann goes in front of cameras wednesday morning when she's a special co-host on abc's "good morning, america." but the highlight of the week is this week's vice presidential debate. both are preparing for their own showdown which takes place thursday in danville, kentucky. >> i'm looking forward to it, i really am. the thing about congressman ryan is he's been straightfwoorward to now about all the significant changes he wants to make. we have a fundamentally different view on a whole range of issues. >> i'm studying, i'm reading joe biden's speeches, watching joe biden tape and just studying on all the various issues. >> and thanks to romney's strong performance at last week's debate, there is even more on the line at the vp showdown. fred? >> thanks so much, paul. big week ahead. the much anticipated vice presidential debate between joe bide
the panel for the clinton global initiative. they are lloyd blankfein, the chairman and ceo of goldman sachs, andrew liveris, the president, chairman and ceo of dow chemical, and john chambers, the chairman and ceo of cisco. the conversation was fascinating. listen in. >>> lloyd, let me start with you. when you look at the global economy, right now, you know, what is it, four years after the crash, what does it look like to you? >> well, we're definitely in a muddle-through phase, slow growth, very disappointing. but i think one of the things that was achieved -- and by the way, in hindsight it may look small but while we were living through it, it was very large. there was a substantial chance too substantial to live with of things falling off the rail. they're still out there, and a lot of the things that would foster growth are still uncertain and are still, you know, frankly they're still in the forward. but i think what was taken off the table recently by the -- frankly by the central banks acting by themselves and less by government through fiscal policy was the real blow-up risk. so i
or your lying eyes here? come on. what are you doing? >> on the attack, that's bill clinton in nevada today taking on mitt romney. clinton's message is clear. is it enough to keep obama in office? let's bring back my political all-stars. charles, when you hear bill clinton, isn't this one of the problems for barack obama? bill clinton is ten times as passionate and aggressive going after mitt romney than the president seems to want to be right now. it's not helpful to him, i don't think. people are like we would vote for clinton but why isn't the president doing this? >> i think that on the stump you get a much more passionate barack obama. i think that what people are kind of dumbfounded by is what happened at the debate because the person that you see on the stump, the person who gave a speech, all the speeches in '08, the person who gave the speech at the convention, that person was not necessarily the same obama that was at the debate and whether that was a strategic decision to seem more presidential or whatever, whatever the calculation was, it was just hard to square with the o
suspect hillary clinton might be thinking about that as well. rvr was in his 70s when he ran for president as well. i think biden is an ambitious guy. he has tried to run for president twice before. it didn't work out, but he is the vice president. paul ryan is a young guy. he is only 42 years old. i suspect even if romney-ryan loses, he has a huge future. he is very popular with the conservative base of the republican party. he is intelligent, smart, good-looking. i suspect he is going to be moving as well, but right now they're not worried about 2016. they're worried about tonight. it will be a lot of fun. we're in it for the long haul. good to see you, as always. >> biden-ryan, they have one thing in common. the support of their wives. we're going to look at the two women who will be on the edge of their seats tonight. [ male announcer ] this is anna, her long day teaching the perfect swing begins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. >>> excitement ahead of tonigh
with secretary clinton today, and she reiterated that we want to make sure, and i agree with her, that we get to the bottom of this. the family of ambassador stevens deserved more. the three other public servants who were killed deserve more. and we're going to get to the bottom of it, no matter how petty it may get with regard to our colleagues. >> last week i pressed chairman issa on why he was holding the hearings now. and i said is it political, why would you do it before the election? and he made the argument back to me, if we don't get this right and we don't know what happened, this could happen again somewhere else. and that if we were caught flat-footed as the united states of america, that that's unacceptable. and there's no reason to put a hearing off. and it seemed a fair argument. are you all right with him holding a hearing now? do you buy that argument? why put it off until after the election? >> yeah. no, i don't buy that argument. look at what the senate has done. first they have acted in a bipartisan way. they have not scheduled any hearings. they sent a joint letter of all
. this is a rally bill clinton is taking part in today. it's actually for the indiana dec democrats and this is a get out the vote that president clinton is taking part in. he's got a busy schedule he's ahead of because he's taking part in a lot of events for president obama and joe biden. he's headed to arizona on wednesday and iowa later in the week, as well. so today this is an effort at a high school. it's north central high school on indianapolis' north side. let's listen in really quick. >> they started, as people enrolled, they started whittling down the profit margin because they realized that as soon as people could get the preventive services and people stayed healthier and the costs stayed down, you couldn't justify wasting the taxpayers' money on that kind of profit margin. so they got some new recommendations which as i said the aarp endorsed and we can cut this profit margin back down to $1.14 for every dollar you spend on regular medicare. in fairness, the people that started it said it ought to be exactly the same because you should have your people healthier and les
to clinton era rates, 39.6% versus 35%. the rich will pay higher investment taxes and you know i think the most important thing is what these two men will do about jobs. they both made the same silly prediction that there will be 12 million new jobs created regardless of who's in office. the nonpartisan congressional budget office predicts that if no policy changes are made, nothing different happens, we just continue on the same road, the unemployment rate will fall to 6.3% by the end of 201. so where could it go if president obama actually got some of his jobs initiatives passed like an infrastructure bank or tax cuts for businesses to hire workers or insource workers to the united states? john king is cnn's chief national correspondent. john, the first term is about getting re-elected. the second term, if it happens, if president obama wins again, he doesn't have to worry about running again. his second term could be about establishing a legacy. what does that likely mean to americans looking toward 2016. >> second-term presidents do look to go big and make the history books. someti
. >> former president clinton teams up with mr. obama at a fund-raiser tonight in california. two days later clinton battles for the president in another battleground state, nevada. romney's wife ann goes in front of cameras wednesday morning when she's a special co-host on ac's "good morning america." but the high light of the week is the vice-presidential debate. >> i can't wait to debate. >> i love a debate. >> it will take place in danville, kentucky. >> i'm look forward to it, i really am. the thing about congressman ryan, he's been straightforward up to now about everything he is -- all the significant changes he wants to make. we have a fundamentally different view on a whole bunch of issues i i'm studied. reading joe biden speeches, watching joe biden tape. >> and thanks to romney's strong performance at last world series eek debate, there's even more on the line at the v.p. showdown. >> paul, thank you for that. >>> if you hear people talking about the big debate that went down saturday night, they're talking about fox news host bill o'reilly and "the daily show" host jon stewart. i
is going to help him more in los angeles, is it going to be the former president bill clinton or is it going to be, i don't know, bon jovi? >> reporter: wow, you know, that's a tough one. i have to say probably both of them will help him because, you know, the president not only bon jovi but also katy perry is here, george clooney, jennifer hudson. a lot of other big names that appeal to a broad array of voters from the old school like earth wind and fire, so older audiences but also some of the young people as well. so i think the president's covering it all with the various stars who are helping here at this fund-raiser but you can't take anything away from what the xlin believes former president bill clinton brings to the table, not only in the speeches he delivers, but also out there in fund-raising. he's held a number of fund-raising events and this week as well here in california he will be holding a fund-raiser. one expected to raise about $160,000. so he's key to the campaign in addition to these entertainers, don. >> so a debate, two big names in the obama campaign, t
, the boss and, bill clinton appeared on stage together in parma, ohio. clinton will talk about the economy and the middle class and maybe he'll break out the sax to jam with the boss. >>> teammate of lance armstrong is speaking out against him. armstrong won the tour de france seven times and tyler hamilton road with him on the u.s. postal service team for four years. he's one of teb former teammates who testified to the u.s. anti-doping agency that armstrong had doped. the agency released its damaging report this week showing that it had uncovered, "overwhellaliell evidence of armstrong's drug use." no reason why they doped for the big races. >> the first time i ever blood doped was with lance and it was certainly for lance, basically. you know, i blood doped myself. you know, it was done by the team but done for the tour de france so i could be a good teammate for lance armstrong. yeah, a lot of it, you know, he wanted you to be riding at your best in the biggest races and for lance it was all about winning the tour de france. >> well, lance armstrong has always denied doping and his att
a clip from bill clinton. this was from last night. i think he hit the nail on the head. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than most people did. i thought -- wow, here is old moderate mitt. where you been boy, i missed you these last two years. >> it is fascinating. flopping all over the place. your head could spin. the candidates are having so much fun. does it almost play against him? that people watch clinton being all of the thing that is we didn't see of the president, could it hurt him? i was thinking about barack obama during the last debate. i think the contrast is not a good one. however, we should never underestimate the fact that he is a hugely powerful barack obama fan. >> we had an interesting discussion about the libya situation. extraordinary comments. it is nothing to do with the republicans anymore. this is to do with how the white house, how the ambassadors dealt with this and it seems not good enough to me that you can put out erroneous statements five days after a terrorist attack. >> the point is they jumped to conclusions. they may not have b
gotten its vote except bill clinton in 1996. and that goes back to 1972. but we have a new poll from rocky mountain, a rocky mountain poll showing obama 42%, romney, 42% among all voters. that is surprising, because just a few weeks ago romney was ahead. we rate arizona as leaning romney, and this poll was taken after the presidential debate that most people thought, even president obama thought that he didn't bring his a-game. so it is a little bit surprising that this poll shows obama slightly ahead of romney. >> yeah, at least it makes the contest more interesting and not predictable. so let's talk about tuesday's debate format. our candy crowley, she is going to be great, make that raddatz, we knew was going to be great. how is this going to be different? >> well, it is a town hall format, different than just the usual area, the candidates are speaking directly to the voters themselves. they're having to gauge or maybe you know, modify their answers based on the reaction, right? it is a lot tougher, it presents a lot more opportunities for mistakes. you remember, don, in 1992, pr
is responsible, joe biden is responsible, hillary clinton is responsible and everybody else. the vice president was stating a fact. the normal routine matters in how you balance the level of security at 100-plus diplomatic posts around the world. those decisions are made day to day, week to week at the state department. so i don't see a contradiction between you what said and the vice president said. >> you didn't think it at all strange last night that he basically said i don't know anything about it? >> i understood this was not the detail that would come to the white house unless there was a significant policy issue or policy dispute. >> the first ambassador killed in 33 years, where does the buck stop? >> it should stop in the oval office. i agree with p.j. in the sense that they may not have been briefed, but it would have been nice that the vice president said i understand this decision may have been made at a lower level, but i'm vice president of the united states and i take responsibility for what happened in libya, that would have been the right thing to do. >> is the white house back
by secretary of state hillary clinton, stellar people whose integrity and credibility is beyond reproach in washington and around the world are going to ask the same exact questions of these witnesses and will then make attack and then i think the american people will try to piece all of this together, and see what happened whether it could have been prevented, and what can be done, most importantly, brooke, what could be done next time to make sure that this doesn't happen again. >> sure. you point out l.a. law and i know a lot of democrats are saying, look, this is just total political theater here today. >> on both sides. >> on both sides, let's be fair. in terms of the actual investigation, elise, has anyone been arrested that is accused of direct involvement in the deaths of the four americans? >> there have been about four libyans that have been arrested in libya. i'm not sure if they're libyan citizens, but people arrested by the libyans, not really sure whether the u.s. has had access to these individuals. there is also two individuals arrested in turkey that defense secretary pa

't know what he believes. bill clinton weighed in on this in 2011 when he started advising the obama campaign. clinton said go with the extremist attack. they tried that flip-flopping thing on me and it didn't work. the american people thought i would do the right thing. so his view, his advice to the obama campaign is hit romney as a republican extremist, not as a flip-flopper. as you see, the campaigns have bounced back and forth between those two strategies. same exact thing with bush against kerry in 2004, they had the same strategic debate. do they hit kerry as a liberal or a flip-flopper? they did both. they ended up with flip-flopper. do you hit them more on character or policy? >> ryan lizza, thanks very much. >> thanks, guys. >>> stay with cnn for the vice presidential debate, also on thursday night. our coverage begins at 7:00 eastern. go to cnn.com as well. >>> a new memo obtain by cnn showing u.s. embassy staff in libya had concerns about security back in february and requested a 16-member special security team be allowed to remain ontheir departure date. that request was

and even bill clinton. they also threw ronald reagan in there. but it was interesting to note the foreign policy team for mitt romney talking about democratic presidents after that debate performance last week when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney was moving to the middle on domestic policy. we might hear some of that on foreign policy later on today, soledad. >> interesting point. jim acosta for us this morning, thank you, jim. >>> a recent poll shows president obama has a seven percentage point lead over mitt romney when it comes to who would handle foreign policy better. let's get to richard williamson, former ambassador to the united nations for special political affairs. mitt romney's senior foreign policy adviser. nice to see you, sir. thank you for talking with us. let's focus on some -- actually what jim acosta just said. let's talk about that first. as you heard there was a phone call with some of the foreign policy advisers. and when they listed sort of the foreign policy that maybe mitt romney would be, i guess, fashioning his own after t
